Among the most dangerous of these laws are …

Reconsidering SCOTUS in the Fight for the Second Amendment

San Diego County Gun Owners San Diego County Gun Owners Leave a Comment

In 2017 I wrote an article questioning the wisdom of depending on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to protect the Second Amendment (2A) and the rights of gun owners in America.

SASOs – American Normals Fight Back

Small Wins – The Fight for the Second Amendment
